Please visit the final projects from our Spring 2017 Style & Design classes.
They are constructed in HTML5/CSS3 and will work on either your computer, tablet or smartphone. These projects are the culmination of a semester of work by some wonderful students.
Their projects include the creation of a magazine, brochure or interactive PDF, infographic, logo, animated GIF, tutorial / how-to video and more.
Students also include projects from their previous class experiences including a survey research project, PR writing media release and press kit, case study, campaign plan, whiteboard presentations and more.
Each project is unique and serves as a representation of the student’s skills well beyond what you will find in a traditional resume.
Software used includes Adobe Creative Cloud’s Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver (Text Wrangler, Notepad++), screen capture software (SnagIt, Quicktime), Canva, WordPress, Ning and other desktop and SaaS software.
The purpose of this semester-long exercise has two main elements: process and product. They both require the following practices:
Personal brand marketing
Here are some of their front page screen shots. Hire them … now!
The semester that these students experienced was one of our most unique over the decade-plus history of creating digital resumes and portfolios. They made it through it all! I’m proud of them. Hire them … now!
Here they are! Our Fall 2014 Auburn University PR studenet digital resumes and portfolios, also referred to as eportfolios. These projects are the culmination of a semester long process that pulls together each student’s overall school and internship work experiences.
They are HTML 5 responsive websites. Each site also has a blog which features each student’s writing assignments for the semester.
Share their work with your colleagues and hire them!
Auburn PR Digital ePortfolios and Resumes – Fall 2014
Please welcome the final projects from our Fall 2013 Style & Design class. These students spent the whole semester preparing many projects for incorporation into this project. And, of course, they edited and prepared the website, too. Give them and look. You’ll be glad you did.
This semester we did something new. In the recent past, we created both a static HTML and mobile version of the digital resumes and portfolios. With the onset of HTML5 and responsive HTML, I decided to let the students purchase a responsive HTML template to use for their final projects. We still learn HTML, but now they learn how to create a static site (or dynamic, as in a blog) that will work on any screen. These resumes should perform well on your smartphone, tablet and computer screens. Let me know what you think.
These students are wonderful. Most have graduated. I suggest that you will be well served if you pursue them for your agency or organization. They’re sharp! They’re fun! You’ll be lucky to have them, too!
Here they are, in no particular order. Well, actually they are in the order they filled out the online form to share their URLs. By the way, we also did a printed portfolio project from the content represented on their websites. I’ve suggested that for years, but this was the first year it was mandatory for this class.
FYI: This semester’s group marks over a decade of digital resume creation by Auburn University PR students. I’m grateful to all of them for humoring me and working so hard on these projects. War Eagle!
